    Magic abusers....

    I hate 'em.:x



    Sometimes I invade or am invaded by somebody and we battle it out neck and neck for a good five to twenty minutes. My heart is racing and I'm totally absorbed in the frenetic action where every minute action matters.

    Other times a giant blue/black mass of flaming smoky mystery gunk flies into my face and I am dead instantly. I hate magic. Not that there is anything wrong with using it!

    It's overpowered if it is better than basically everything but isn't unbeatable.

    I was in the burg everything was on fire and dark beads were flying threw the flames. I couldnt even tell where he was if I wasnt locked on.

    He also dark beaded me through toxic mist a few times.

    Cant dodge what you cant see. sad

    Being overpowered means that something has a winning combination of damage dealt per hit,, frequency of use (as well as spammability), and ability to actually hit the target.

    This is why pyromancy, which lacks hitting ability and the longsword, which has a lack of damage per hit, are both considered balanced or underpowered in PVP. Whereas the Seekers which combine, damage dealt, hitting ability, and ease of use, are easily the most overpowered things in the game right now.

    Kind of makes you wonder if the most ideal PvP class is the Cleric. You get access to GMB and VoS, plus WoG if anyone really abuses magic. And you can still have enough stats left to make a sweet melee class toon.

    Anyone know if VoS works on Pyro? Never tried it myself.

    Yes it does. It prevents all forms of spell casting, which I found out to my dismay when I tried to use great combustion on a couple of gankers silly

    In my opinion, something is overpowered when the only effective counter, disregarding player skill differences, is the mechanic itself.

    For instance, back before the nerf, if two players of equal skill fought but one was using TWoP and one wasn't, the one using TWoP would practically always win. The only counter to a situation where TWoP was used successfully was to use TWoP yourself.
